Prayer of a Christian



The prayer of a Christian is not an attempt to force God’s hand, but a humble acknowledgement of helplessness and dependence. ~J. l. Packer

The most common prayer among Christians is the “Lord’s Prayer”,

which according to the gospel accounts (e.g. Matthew 6:9-13) is how Jesus taught his disciples to pray. “The Lord’s Prayer” is a model for prayers of adoration, confession and petition in Christianity.

Prayer is an important activity in Christianity, and there are several different forms of Christian prayer.

Christian prayers are diverse: they can be completely spontaneous, or read entirely from a text. The most common prayer among Christians is the “Lord’s Prayer“, which according to the gospel accounts (e.g. Matthew 6:9-13) is how Jesus taught his disciples to pray.[2] “The Lord’s Prayer” is a model for prayers of adoration, confession and petition in Christianity.[2]

A broad, three stage characterization of prayer begins with vocal prayer, then moves on to a more structured form in terms of meditation, then reaches the multiple layers of contemplation,[3][4] or intercession.
